More Information
The tenth book and the subject of a hoax on the authors part. Vivienne Michel is credited as a joint author, she was in fact simply the wife of Fleming's golfing partner. Cape produced 30,000 copies, a reduction on the previous run caused no doubt by first editions of Thunderball still being available. Copies do exist with a quad mark between the E and the M of Fleming on the title page. This is simply a printers spacing slug which must have worked loose during the print run and is of no bibliographical significance. It is much scarcer than copies without so consequently is more valued by collectors.
